Huh, you said. I heard it so here I’ll show you. WMWW is Watch My Weight Wednesday, it’s hosted by Angie and it’s a perfect way to meet and greet follow people trying to lose weight and keep it off. WW-I is Weekly Weigh-in hosted by Amy. This place makes you accountable for you weekly successes or nots. You can hook up with either if you want too and then go and see how everyone is doing. Give some encouragement and bloggly love.
For me this week I haven’t lost an ounce. It might be the fact I’m getting my period, again! Or maybe the fact that I’ve been baking for my scouts and daycare and on Monday ate 6 fresh from the oven peanut butter cookies plus dough and Tuesday fresh from the oven chocolate chip cookies plus dough. Or maybe it’s the box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch I opened last Thursday and finished up yesterday. Or just maybe it’s the couple dozen peanut M&M’s that I have eaten. I prefer to blame it on my period, how about you?
I do have to say I have been working out hard. Last week to this week, in 8 days I have walked 27.4 miles, I have played tennis twice and then a cool down walk of a mile, I’ve gone swimming twice plus weigh trained twice. So it’s a good thing I’ve been doing that or I’m sure that scale would of shown an increase instead of staying at 201.
I did eat good this week too. Lots of fruits and veggies along with my own chickens with little or no fat on them so I’m still learning and I knew the other stuff wasn’t good for me but it just tasted and smelled so good I couldn’t help myself.
So there you have it. I’m still trying hard (mostly, I am!!) and I’m excited to measure myself on the 31st to see what results I have for the month of July. I am loving my legs and butt, they are shaping up so nicely. My tummy is shrinking, in fact last night to go play tennis I put on a pair of size 18 no stretch, no give jean shorts and I didn’t have to lay down to do it. I was able to bend over and pick the ball up with out losing my breath and I felt good. I love my size 16 stretch jean shorts but know I can wear them because they stretch. So it’s all working. I’ve lost 10” off my waist so far and for me that’s impressive and I’m proud of myself. I would like to get to a 36” waist, that sounds like a nice number and a healthy one too.
Oh I almost forgot, how could I do that? I got a Wii from craigslist last night. A man in my home town listed it at 3:45 in the afternoon, at 4:15 he sold it to me and he’s delivering it to Mike for me this morning. For some reason I decided to just check out craigslist and there is was, just like it was meant to be. The best part, I got it for $150.00 and it still comes with a 2 year warranty because he just bought it at Christmas time for his kids and they don’t play it. He figured maybe 10 times it’s been used and he paid over $400.00 for all the goodies it comes with. So now I’m on the hunt for the Wii fit and Sport games (it comes with something sport he said so I’ll see what he’s talking about). Both Mike and Jim are excited because it comes with extra controllers, num chucks, a cross bow and some more manly stuff. I’m excited because I now will own one and can see just what you are all talking about.
Good luck my friends on your life style changes. Please tell me how your doing and anything you’ve learned pass on. I really am enjoying this new way of life. I know the goods and bads and mostly I follow the good path but those bads, well sometimes they just jump right out and grab me. How about you?
Take care and have a most blessed day today.
